Description

The mission of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) is to defend and sustain individual rights at America’s colleges and universities. These rights include freedom of speech, legal equality, due process, religious liberty, and sanctity of conscience—the essential qualities of individual liberty and dignity. FIRE’s core mission is to protect the unprotected and to educate the public and communities of concerned Americans about the threats to these rights on our campuses and about the means to preserve them.

Responsibilities

FIRE is looking for intelligent, energetic undergraduates (rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors) interested in FIRE’s mission and work. Candidates must possess excellent research, writing, and communication skills. The ability to work under pressure and a sense of humor are also important. We are expecting over 1000 applications for just eight spots, making FIRE’s internship one of the most competitive in the country.

Interns will work closely with our Campus Outreach, Defense, Policy Reform, Development, Litigation, and Media teams and gain key insights into the mission, work, and administration of the premier campus civil liberties defense organization in the nation.

In addition to attending weekly educational seminars with experts in the field to discuss the moral, philosophical, and legal foundations of civil liberties, interns write about FIRE cases and issues for our website, assist with planning and running the annual student summer conference, and develop strategies for defending free speech when they return to campus.
